DOG DITTY DAILY #20
A Motivational Moment for Misguided Masters & Mutts
By Hugo Hotagen, DDD (Duke of Doorknobs & Doghouses), a loyal lapdog-in-training apprenticed to the affable, agnostic and all-round air-headed Court of the Quipping Queen.
Here is a quaint if not quintessenial quotation in honor of the "Year of the Dog":
"Near this spot are deposited the remains of one who possessed Beauty without Vanity, Strength without Insolence, Courage without Ferocity, and all the Vitues of Man, without his Vices. This Praise, which would be unmeaning Flattery if inscribed over human ashes, is but a just tribute to the Memory of Boatswain, a Dog." (George Gordon, Lord Byron, Inscription on the Monument of a Newfoundland Dog.)__________
And speaking of delightful daring dogs and their ong-haired stories, why not take a peek at a remake of an old film, "The Shaggy Dog" http://disney.go.com/disneypictures/shaggydog/
